APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • Using the setmqaut command with commands generated by amqoamd
    results in a failure e.g
    
    "setmqaut -m qmgrname -n name -t queue -g group +None"
    returns:
    "AMQ7097: You gave an authorization specification that is not
    valid."
    

Local fix

  • Edit the output generated by amqoamd to replace "+None" by
    "+none".   The setmqaut command will then work as intended.
    

Problem summary

  • Running the amqoamd command produces output with "setmqaut with
    authorization specification as +None" for objects that have no
    authorization specified. When these setmqaut commands are run to
    set the object authorization later, the command fails.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The setmqaut commands were created with authorization "+None".
    The correct authorization for objects with no authorization is
    "+none" ( lowercase none). Correct the code that creates the
    setmqaut command to produce authorization with +none instead of
    +None.
    

Temporary fix

  • Modify the setmqaut commands created by the amqoamd and replace
    +None to +none for objects that have no specific authorization.
